Passengers Stranded at Lagos Airport as NAHCO Begins Strike

Passengers Stranded at Lagos Airport as NAHCO Begins Strike (News Central TV)

On Monday morning, international flights at the Murtala Mohammed International Airport were cancelled due to a strike action by employees of the Nigerian Aviation Handling Company Plc, NAHCO.

The industrial action is over a pay increase, claims NAHCO.

Alex Nuba, an impacted traveler and aviation specialist, claimed that NAHCO employees left the international airport on Monday morning, declaring they were on strike and refusing to handle any passengers.

“Even the Qatar flight I’m traveling with this morning landed and has returned to Doha as there’s no one to handle them,” Nwuba said.

Because they were held outside to prevent a crisis and no information, announcements, or emails were issued to travelers, he claimed that people are angry.

For a number of foreign carriers, including Air France/KLM, Qatar, Ethiopian Airlines, Delta Airlines, Virgin Atlantic, and Turkish Air, NAHCO provides check-in, boarding, and ramp services.

More flights would be grounded, according to travelers, if the problem is not resolved.
